Top 10 Best-selling ePublish Store products for Oct. 2001
Several alternative-to-Acrobat, PDF-authoring products made the
store's Top 10 list (best-selling products) for October 2001. Most
offer free demo versions, so you can find out why these are among the
most popular PDF-related tools. In addition, the store features more
than 130 other products available for online purchase and download.
Streamlining the search for Acrobat PDF products
The number of Acrobat PDF-related products available for immediate purchase and download from the ePublish Store (formerly Planet PDF Store continues to grow. Customer feedback continually reinforces the fact that purchasers often need the software as soon as possible, frequently visiting the store when facing an urgent project deadline -- and in need of a tool to help accomplish that.
The ePublish Store staff are always looking for ways to help expedite the process so you can promptly get what you need and get back to work.
With more than 250 products from some 50 companies currently on the store's virtual shelves -- and more coming soon -- there frequently is more than one product available to accomplish certain tasks. We've now streamlined the process of finding products that offer solutions in a select set of categories, making it easier for you to compare similar offerings. Nearly every product is also available in a free demonstration version, so there's no need to buy just to try. Make sure it's what you need first, then take the next step.
Once you've identified the tool or tools you need, each is available for immediate purchase -- it'll be ready for download, installation and use usually within minutes.
